    Change Gmail Account

    My transformer is on a Gmail account that my wife and I share. I want to change it to my gmail account, as i am getting her a Nook for xmax. So i want to change my transformer email to my gmail account.

    Ive heard it's not easy to do, or you have to wipe to do it.

    Anyone help on this???

    My market is linked to my shared gmail, so i want all my apps to be part of my gmail market.

    I would just add the new gmail account and disable the sync on the shared account.
    That way you can keep using the shared account for the Market and use your regular account for mail, contacts and calendar.

    Otherwise you'd need to wipe and reinstall with the new account. But that renders the shared account useless for the Market.

    I've thought of that, but i'm trying to do it right, without doing it the hard way.

    If you got to the setting on your market account you should be able to change your e-mail account. Then delete your shared account on the TF. Restart the TF and add your new e-mail account.

    This is from the Market help section

    Contact us from both the original email address and the new email address ... We require emails from both accounts so that we can confirm ownership. ...

    What I would do would be to have the shared account installed on both devices so that if you purchase an app, she can get it too for free and visa-versa.

    To change the accounts, there is no need to wipe data.

    Go to Settings App then go to the Accounts.

    To remove an account, tap the account and the there is a Remove Account button in the top right.

    Back on the Settings - Account screen, tap the + in the top right to add another Google account.

    I have my Wife's Google account installed on my TF so that I can see her calendar and contacts. I have her Gmail set not to sync (tap the account to enable/disable sync) along with most of the services other than Calendar and Contacts.

    I use the Email app for all of my email accounts in one app (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Android and me.com).
